Inspire

Well, I posted this a couple of days ago....and then Blogger went crazy.  (Not my fault, I swear!!)  Now, my post has disappeared.  I don't really remember everything I said...a lot about not being really sure what Steampunk is but I've been hearing about it a lot and really wanted to give it a shot.  Anyway, here's the card I posted.


Basically, I used lots of Tim Holtz.  Distress inks, embellishments, embossing folders.  If you're really interested, let me know and I will give you a list of the components.  Main thing is the image is from Tiddly Inks.  Love it!

Sorry this is so breif...I'm actually at work right now and trying just to get this up as soon as possible.  =(  I promise my first post was cool and kind of funny....but now you'll never know. LOL

You're exactly right with the steam punk! It's kind of a different universe and an aspect of a fantasy world. LOVE this card!
